    Saveology is a Scam Site

    I am writing this post for anyone who is thinking of purchasing from Saveology. It’s one of those “too good to be true” things online.

    Ya all know my favorite store is Pottery Barn. A few people sent me a link to Saveology’s Deal of the Day – $12.50 for a $25.00 card. I knew it was too good to be true, but I went against my better judgement and purchased the “DEAL.”   After purchasing the deal, you need to call in to a number where they take your code and try to sell you another deal. I’m good at saying no to phone deals so my agent understood that I only wanted what I called in for.  Some customers get agents who think charge the customer anyway (see tweet below – edited profanity because that isn’t necessary)

    My Pottery Barn gift card arrived yesterday. Since I know the store well and received many gift cards, I know that this is one of the older gift cards. I went to check the balance on the card and I get this:

     

     

    I check again because maybe I typed the numbers wrong. Nope – I got scammed!

     

    After calling and e-mailing the company, I finally send them a tweet about fraud. And this is what they respond back:

     

     
    Really Saveology? You don’t know my e-mail address. You don’t see it on your records with this username?  If Saveology even had a half way decent customer service or they knew how to use social media, their rep would have already e-mailed me. 

     I use Amex and I was able to contact them immediately about the scam. I know it’s just $12.50, but I don’t want to be scammed. 

    So if you are wondering if Saveology deals are real, they aren’t. Keep your money in your pocket and don’t be scammed like I was.

      No this is my experience with the company. And when I checked your IP, I can see you are from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Wow that’s interesting because that is where Saveology is located. It’s Sunday and I am assuming most people won’t have any interest responding to and old post of mine.

      EXCEPT FOR SAVEOLOGY.

      So why not write an apology instead? You know I’ve had trouble with your site, you can see I posted my gift certificate with $0.00 on it. That’s fraud.

      Did you see the VP’s video. Maybe he should have spent the time checking the gift cards instead of recording this video.

      Used to work for the company..I can assure you it’s all a scam..I’m currently working with a local south Florida news team to break a story about the scams I’ve seen run out of that company for almost 3 years…the worst is they have their own tech support that when you call, they claim they are apple support..they also claim to be a dealer for ADT..but they are not…they do nothing but lie and cheat and scam and hopefully it will soon be put to an end!
